City Scripts 2018

City Scripts 2018 in Bangalore pushed towards thinking about how the city itself is produced and reproduced through different forms of writing-from novels to Wikipedia, poetry to law, hashtags to essays, ethnography to children’s books. Keeping with its theme of ‘Mapping the city through its many stories’, the three-day festival hosted sessions on open data and knowledge sharing, alternative smaller media movements reporting ground-up narratives, Bengaluru’s platform economy, and the city’s public and private libraries and imaginations for their future. The closing day featured back-to-back sessions centre-staging namma ooru and those who weave its stories and take it to the world-through books, music, sketches and skits.
